A view of the path 17th Street would take were it not interrupted by the houses on Sorority Hill. The northern edge of the Parking Garage looms over the "rear entrance" of Jackson House. And it being the weekend after everyone left for Spring Break, the trash receptacle is over-flowing with goodies.

A 2009 photograph reveals this house, too, received a new door since we'd last been on campus.

Jackson House a two-story student residence located north of 17th Street and between Avenues I and J.

Residence Life classifies this small house as being part of "Sorority Hill."

Of the eight houses on the Sorority Hill, only Jackson and Shaver houses appear to have never housed a sorority or changed names since its construction.
